If I stay a little longer
I’m afraid I’ll never leave
If I let you take another piece of me,
Who will I be?

Your footsteps roam my body,
Footprints all over me
I can’t run from you
You haunt the soul in me

And how far will I go
When the thing I’m escaping from,
Is inside of me

Your ‘sorry’s don’t hold any meaning anymore
Your ignorance blocks the entrance to your heart
I’ve exhausted myself,
From all the validation I seek

I’m not the idea of me you’ve created in your head
No, not anymore
